, laws can come and go. what they call manners stay. manners are the way people treat each other and how they regard each other and how they behave. this is very appealing to the new americans. one thing they are inventing, a whole bunch of laws they are not sure people would buy. they needed people to behave. the phrase they used was republican virtue. that meant people would put the interests of the country before themselves. how do you get people to do that? they looked to the women of the class to start enforcing national matters. these white women of the cities were very conscious of that. >> here are the phone lines. if you live in the eastern or central time zones, our number is -- please dial carefully. we will take calls and another 10 minutes. this is a facebook question. i will turn to you has a long time curator of first ladies. the early first ladies for excellence riders. in what conditions are early letters? we saw thousands of letters last week. but what about dolley madison? what did she preserved? did she have a sense of her legacy? >> i think she did. she is writing to
as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei
the monumental changes to our economy over the past 10 years since the law was last authorized. there are many important reasons to do so, including cutting waste and improving he efishency, but the most important reason to me is the moral one. quite simply the existing maze of federal work force training programs is failing those who it is intended to be serving by trying to be all things to all people, the federal work force training program is serving no one well. that's a problem. the federal government's food print has gotten far too large and our national debt has grown with it. as a result of this failing to serve the work force of today and piling up ever larger bills for the children of tomorrow. people that don't even exist yet. what the skills act does is consolidate and eliminate many unnecessary and duplicative programs not simply for the sake of downsizing but improve the quality of work force training. that's what we should all be about. republican and democrat alike. business owners understand this. they understand the importance of streamlining and efishency. they understand t
the point. the senator knows having attended law school and professes to have some experience in the constitution, none of these rights are absolute. none of them. and the heller decision goes specifically to the question of this amendment and tells us when they were asked in the heller decision, a panel -- heller 2, a panel of republican appointed judges rejected a second amendment challenge to d.c.'s assault weapon ban and magazine limits, the second amendment challenge. the d.c. circuit court held that such laws, quote, do not disarm 1:15. up until then from this morning's "washington journal," senator sanders from vermont. host: senator bernie sanders, senator from vermont, here. thank you for being here. you served on the budget committee. we saw senator patty murray, the chairman, introduce her budget plan. here's the headline in "the washington times" -- there are no sacred cows that calls for $1 trillion in new taxes. what's your takeaway? guest: well, what it does is also call for substantial cuts, but it deals with deficit reduction in a balanced way. what the republ
is the reality we are bending to? we accept that these tax increases are in law. they have started and they are there. we are saying, we can hit these same numbers without hurting the economy and without costing jobs through fundamental tax reform. that is what we are saying. get rid of these jobs. jobs -- job killing tax increases. get rid of the high tax rates and small businesses through tax reform. another point i think the ranking member will keep mentioning, medicare. and the medicare savings used for obamacare. two points. if you take the money from medicare to spend on obamacare, it does not go to medicare. we are saying, do not spend it on obamacare. make sure it goes to spending on the solvency of medicare. a number of groups in writing obamacare, supporting the legislation, said they could do more with less, but not all providers said that. we really do not know the answer to the puzzle because most of the cuts have not occurred yet. the tax increases are already in law and have already started. all the provider changes in the medicare network, and i have been on the ove

laws and above all the vigilant and manly spirit which actuates the people of america, a spirit which nourishes freedom and in return is nourished by it, end quote. so in the spirit of james madison, i will be filing legislation to make the sequester apply to the pay of members of congress at the first moment that is constitutionally permissible. members, this body must live under the same rules as everybody else. our founding fathers expected it, the american people demand it. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my ime. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from new mexico, mr. lujan, for five minutes. mr. lujan: i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. r. lujan: mr. speaker, the house republican budget unveiled yesterday by chairman paul ryan is the repeat of the same tea party principles that have already been rejected by the american people. house republicans are once again determined to place the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of middle-class families while the wealthiest a
be the best way. host: we saw an effort to repeal the health care law yesterday. it failed in the senate. here's the news from "washington times" -- let's hear from chris in sarasota, florida, republican. caller: i have a question. why not make the tax is lower instead of? balancing the of the budget could cut down to where some people might think it's appropriate. taxesetter to raise rather than raise some and borrow the rest. host: let's go to dan on the independent line in youngstown, ohio. caller: the republicans were talking about increasing spending by 3.5%. every democrat was whining about how cuts are going to kill us. we are still spending right now 4% more than we did last year. they are whining and crying that we are cutting too much? we are cutting 2% from the 6% increase that they intended to have. that is not a cut. we want to spend less money than we did the previous year is what i want to see. the other thing is we are passing this debt on to it our children and grandchildren. no other generation in history has passed massive amounts of deaths on to the next generation the way
this house was led by democrats, and you can see the laws that they have passed and the amazing amount of spending that it would place upon our country. we don't even show in here individually where social security is that will go bankrupt. medicare, bankrupt. medicaid, insolvent. our inability to be able to pay or our future by creating jobs today. the free enterprise system is exactly what republicans support and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is every
